5 Scriptures To Meditate On This Month | Holy Spirit

God is Triune. 3 Persons, 1 Essence. Last year we have gone over 5 scriptures regarding Christ (see: 5 Scriptures To Meditate On This Month | Jesus is God. Last month we went over 5 scriptures for the Father, (see: 5 Scriptures To Meditate On This Month | Father). Today we are going to wrap up the Trinity by focusing on the third Person, the Holy Spirit.

Just like with the previous posts there will be additional notes because the Trinity can be hard to understand and it is important we understand our Lord. To help us out, I’m going to share the section I had on the Holy Spirit from my post: Covenant of Redemption | Understanding The Trinity

The Holy Spirit: 

Let’s dive into 5 scriptures you can meditate on this month, if you would like.

John 14:26 – But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.

Luke 3:21-22 – Now when all the people were baptized, and when Jesus also had been baptized and was praying, the heavens were opened, and the Holy Spirit descended on him in bodily form, like a dove; and a voice came from heaven, “You are my beloved Son; with you I am well pleased.” (See 1 Timothy 3:16 below.)

1 Timothy 3:16- Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness: He was manifested in the flesh, vindicated by the Spirit, seen by angels, proclaimed among the nations, believed on in the world, taken up in glory.

Isaiah 11:02 – And the Spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and the fear of the LORD.

Hebrews 9:13-14 – For if the blood of goats and bulls, and the sprinkling of defiled persons with the ashes of a heifer, sanctify for the purification of the flesh, how much more will the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered himself without blemish to God, purify our conscience from dead works to serve the living God.

What To Take Away From Today’s Scriptures?

  • The Holy Spirit helps us understand the teachings of Jesus Christ.
  • Christ was vindicated by the Holy Spirit. Justified, given evidence, and proof. Christ claimed to be God and work of the Spirit is part of the evidence for why Jesus was correct in claiming to be God. He was and is and will forever be God.
  • The Holy Spirit was upon Jesus, giving Him wisdom, counsel, might, knowledge, and the fear of the Lord.
  • Christ was blameless, without sin. The Holy Spirit had a role in Christ’s blamelessness. The Holy Spirit is God. Christ is God and had a second nature added to Him, becoming the God-Man. The Holy Spirit overshadowed Mary so Christ could have a dual nature.

The Gospel Message– The Gospel message is good news, which means there’s bad news. We all are sinners and condemned. We all deserve the just punishment of God’s wrath. Christianity is unlike any other religion because we cannot earn our way into Heaven. God saw the weakness of man and his utter depravity. Yet, He showed us grace. Jesus, God, One Person of the Trinity, became God in the flesh, the God-Man. He was always perfect and sinless. And His humanity was perfected on the cross, living the full sinless life. He became our atonement sacrifice. Dying in our place, taking on the wrath of God upon Himself. He died on the cross, and He was resurrected because death could not hold Him. Jesus is the answer. We, as guilty sinners, need His blood to pay off our debt of sin. For all who put their faith in Him – meaning eyes are opened to the Gospel, we see ourselves as a sinner, we see the need for Christ, we desire our Savior, and we see the ugliness of our sin. Putting our faith in Jesus, we seek HIs forgiveness and repent from our sins, we turn away from our old way of life. We, through the work of the Holy Spirit, continue to become convicted of sin daily. Our eyes will never be the same again. We see things in a different light, and the truth of Christ affects how we live and serve Him. Christ tells us to count the cost. Salvation is a serious topic, it is not to be taken lightly. For a breakdown of this powerful message, understanding how Christ could be God and Man, why God required sacrifices, and more -please see: Why Did A Loving God Kill His Son? (Does God Hate?)

Scripture To Meditate On (ESV) John 15:06 – If anyone does not abide in me he is thrown away like a branch and withers; and the branches are gathered, thrown into the fire, and burned.
